  • The Doc provides a behind the scenes look at the state of the wholesale physical gold and silver markets in the US, and reveals the launch of SD’s first limited edition coin series in June!

The SD Weekly Metals & Markets Wrap With The Doc & Eric Dubin is below:

flash smashWe have well documented the fact that over the past few years, gold and silver are smashed on the FOMC release, with the smash nearly always culminating early Thursday morning. 
The April FOMC meeting proved no exception, as silver has been smashed to an $18 handle this morning, and gold below $1280. 

  • Bernanke taperFed meets expectations, Tapers another $10 billion, down to $45 billion in asset purchases/ month
  • Beginning in May, the Committee will add to its holdings of agency mortgage-backed securities at a pace of $20 billion per month rather than $25 billion per month, and will add to its holdings of longer-term Treasury securities at a pace of $25 billion per month rather than $30 billion per month

Gold & silver spiking on the release…we suspect the smash is imminent

Full April FOMC Statement is below:

dynamiteIt is said that history doesn’t repeat itself, but in the case of silver, I don’t see how that can be avoided. In more ways than not, silver today reminds me of the time when it traded under $5 per ounce.
As was the case back then, the thought that it might eventually climb more than ten times in value was widely disbelieved and openly scoffed at. That’s because silver was the most undervalued asset in the world, both then and now. If you didn’t catch the first run, you’ve just been given a second chance.
And it is also interesting that silver is registering as the most undervalued investment asset precisely at the same time when there is more total investment net worth and buying power in the world than ever before
. The assets in hedge funds alone are now at a record $2.7 trillion; 1 percent of which ($27 billion) is more than the value of all the silver bullion in the world (if it could be bought).
The 100 million oz of new silver available for investment annually would take only one-tenth of one percent ($2.7 billion) of hedge fund assets. Unless hedge funds have stopped looking for undervalued assets, I can’t help but feel that’s a set up akin to a lit match and a barrel of dynamite.

The SD Weekly Metals & Markets With special guest Dennis Linthicum is below:

Agenda 21 MapWhy is the federal government so obsessed with grabbing more land?  After all, the federal government already owns more than 40 percent of the land in 9 different U.S. states.  Why are federal bureaucrats so determined to grab even more?  Well, the truth is that this all becomes much clearer once you understand that there is a very twisted philosophy behind what they are doing.  It is commonly known as “Agenda 21″.  Those that hold to this form of radical environmentalism believe that humanity is utterly destroying the planet, and therefore the goal should be to create a world where literally everything that we do is tightly monitored and controlled by control freak bureaucrats in the name of “sustainable development”.  In their vision of the future, the human population will be greatly reduced and human activity will be limited to strictly regulated urban areas and travel corridors.  The rest of the planet will be left to nature.  To achieve this goal, a massive transfer of land from private landowners to the federal government will be necessary.
The conflict between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the BLM is really just the tip of the iceberg.  The reality is that the BLM has their eyes on much bigger prizes.

bail-inOver the past 18 months we’ve seen nearly all of the Western nations move to prepare for bail-ins for the next financial crisis. 
They’re not doing that for no reason- they’re preparing the legislation because they know its coming and they know that bail-outs are no longer an option, so their last ditch effort now is to bail-in and steal money from the depositors to forestall the next banking system collapse.  
The Doc joins Finance & Liberty’s Elijah Johnson for an exclusive interview discussing The Doc’s views on where gold & silver are headed for the second half of 2014 and beyond, the issue of counterfeit precious metals, and the liklihood that Western governments will bail-in depositors and retirement accounts during the next financial crisis.
